Is the water draining out of the machine? if not does it drain when you lower the pipe to the floor, if it does you need a new pump, if it doesn't you have a blockage.

My whirl pool duet sport keeps having an error message of f21 and 5d. i read that it means the water is not draining right. what can i do to fix this?

F21 means to a long drain.
Basically means that water is not pumping out quick enough. If all the drain lines have been checked for blockages and restrictions the manufacturer recommends the pump is replaced. Some times the impeller can become damaged or the motor which can cause the pump to work slower then it should causing this error code. If you took off the hose from the tub to the pump and found nothing then I doubt there is a blockage in the drum (it would have moved into the drain filter).

If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases, the washer will fill 4 liters of water and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again.

If too much detergent was used:
- Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
- Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent.

This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.

Hope this helps.

F11 blocked inlet/drain

f11 error code says in the manual
Drainage fault
Water present in appliance and is not being drained off. The display shows

Drain fault F11. The buzzer is activated for 2 minutes.

Background information:
After each drain pump step, the circulation pump operates for 2 seconds and heater pressure switch B1/13 checks the water level. If it is too high (large quantity of residual water remaining in the cabinet), the drainage time is extended. If, after a further check, the water level is still too high, then the program is interrupted, the fault code is saved and the drain pump is activated. Fault code F11 is also registered if heater relay 1K1 is not activated after the fault code F51 register check; see Section 080-3.18. Drain hose kinked. Remedy: Check the drain hose for correct positioning. Cause: Drain blocked.


1. Clean the on-site drain.
2. Check the sump drain.
3. Check the filters.
4. Check the heater pressure switch and replace it if necessary.

Ball in non-return valve in sump has not opened (e.g., jammed).

Clean the non-return valve in the sump or replace it if necessary. Cause: Foreign objects in the drain pump.

Clean the drain pump and its impeller.

Drain pump defective.


1. Check the voltage supply to the drain pump.
2. If correct voltage is present, check the drain pump motor winding.
3. Replace the drain pump, if necessary.

Foreign objects in heater pressure switch.

Check the heater pressure switch for blockages and correct switching point.

Heater relay defective. Heater relay (coil or contacts) becomes defective during the drainage step (after fault code F51 register check).

Replace the heater relay.
this is usually caused by a blockage in the drain but can also occur from other circumstances as listed above you can also see this at this link as well

Hi - I have a Duet Front load washer and the error code I keep getting is F (only F, no number after it) and the machine is dripping from the bottom. Any idea what the issue is?.

Code F is a water fill error code.

Check All your incoming hoses for leaks or kinks.Check supply water inlets screens for blockage or debri.

Also have a look at your drain hose for blockage or leaks.

What does e20 mean on a zanussi electrolux progress 1200 hydrosystem

The error e20 indicates towards pump.The pump needs to be checked. The pump is blocked or broken.e20 is a not draining error code,check filter at bottom.could be faulty pump or something jammed in the impeller. --------------------------

You have a blockage in the drain hose I would suspect.

Keep putting it on drain till you get the water out or simply lower the drain hose into a wash basin.

Once it's empty, put a couple of towels down, unplug the machine and lay it carefully onto it's left side. Left side viewed from the front. (turn off the water first and disconnect the fill hose if necessary).

You can now take the drain hose off of the pump and take it out of the appliance to check for a blockage.If no blockage, you'll need to take the pump out and check that too.

Check the hose first.Also check for any small cloth getting blocked in the machine inside.

To remove the pump,It's clipped into the base.Look at the underside of the base.Squeeze the clips together and push them into the base a little.You can then slide the pump out of the filter housing.Watch for the O ring as this has to go back on to seal the pump.The pump slides in and out.

You'll only need to unplug the wiring.If hose or pump checked out faulty then it has to be replaced,if filter is clogged clean it.

E24 error on my dishwasher

E24 indicates a draining failure.

If the appliance has stopped full of water then you have to check the drain hose for blockages, especially where it connects to the drain. Check the pump for a blockage, bail out the water manually and remove the filters. You should find a cover held by a screw covering the pump impellor. Take out the screw, take off the cover and remove anything jamming the pump. Refit the cover and try the appliance again.

Error code f02 comes up

The f02 error code is caused when the unit control thinks there is still water in the tub after it has tried to drain. If the washer is full of soap suds it will also display an f02 error code. You will need to use only name brand HE detergent. If your washer is not draining the water out you will need to clean the pump filter. I have provided the instructions below. Run the washer in a drain and spin to ensure the pump is running. If the washer has no water and no suds the problem will be either the pressure switch or a plugged pressure hose. To check the pressure hose you will need to remove the top and remove the hose from the pressure switch. Ensure the hose is clear by blowing into it. If the hose is clear I recommend replacing the pressure switch.

I have a Frigidaire front end load washer with an error code 20

E20 is an error code for drainage failure.

Check where the appliance drain hose connects to the house drains for a blockage.

If it's onto a spigot under the sink, take them off and check both for a blockage.

If these are ok then it's likely to be a blockage in the pump.

You'll need to drain the water out manually.

Put a shallow dish below the filter and slacken the filter.

Tighten it to stop the flow of water while you empty the dish.

Once empty, take the filter out, clean out the debris and ensure nothing is left jamming the pump.

Before refitting the filter, put the machine on drain or spin and listen at the filter housing to see if you can hear the pump running.

If you do, fit the filter and try the machine again.
